Transportation Basics

Updated

Want to get into transporting? Awesome! uShip is a great place to jump start your career. Check out our Learn More pages to discover all the ways we benefit carriers on our site!

We know that it's tempting to start bidding on shipments right away, but you'll need to make a few pit stops before you begin. First, take the time to review our User Agreement to familiarize yourself with our rules and policies, and learn how you can book shipments and get paid.

One of our core policies within our User Agreement stipulates that you must only bid on items for which you have the proper authority, licensing, and permits. This is very important! Before you begin bidding, please refer to the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration to learn more. This will be your ultimate reference point while operating within the transportation industry.

Once you’ve obtained the proper permits for your vehicle and shipment types, it's time to create a uShip account! From here, you can start finding shipments and managing your business. Also, be sure to download the uShip Mobile App (available for Android and iOS) to offer customers location sharing, and easily handle your shipments from the road.
